Samanyan Lakshminarayanan


every day
every single day
you carry on your way

no disgust shown
not tired or worn
not a dropp of sweat from your brow
kisses the ground
with that pleasant smiley round

every day
every single day
you carry on your way

not a duty or compulsion you show
you touch every bit of this earth
that you have given birth...with joy
you touch every life on this earth
that it has given birth..with pride and joy
the granny and mummy you are
that pleasant smiley round...THE SUN

with that joy in your face
every day
every single day
you carry on your way

    great and brilliant poem...
    no disgust shown as it continues to shine the world everyday...
    every single day to watch over her children
    giving light and life to every living things on earth...
    the very proof of God's wisdom...The Sun...
    what would life be without this pleasant smiley round?
    a wonderful poem of nature's gift...of God's gift..
    The mystery of His wisdom...
    and as human, we have to take part in protecting it...
    to let it continue to carry on its way..
    a very fruitful share, my friend...

    The son, the moon and the earth are your favorite metaphors.
    The Sun as the granny and mommy......A wonderful image.
    The life on earth is much dependent on sun. A universal poem.

    I'm glad you clarify who you are writing this about as the poem progresses... I was just about to feel horrible about myself as a mother because I ceratinly have days where I am 'tired and worn' and have ample 'disgust shown'. Nice metaphor, though! (Report) Reply

    This is a conception of mother
    Universally accepted.
    How amny such mothers can be there ever smiling? ? ?
    The toil of day takes away the smile from her
    But its sure.. behind evry different face of a mother
    Strong loving pulpitations takes shape each bit of a second.

    Good read. Thank you. (Report) Reply
